We’re in CURBED!

The El Moore Lodge

The El Moore Lodge and Hostel construction in progress.











Not that we do it for the recognition, but when recognition does come our way we  must say it feels good. So when we noticed that our very own El Moore was recently reviewed in CURBED Detroit, well, that was pretty cool.

Here is some of what they had to say on May 30, 2014:

“The renovation is a project of Green Garage, an eco-friendly business incubator headquartered in Midtown. According to spokesman Jason Peet, the 1898 building will be outfitted with a long list of green technologies including high-efficiency insulation and geothermal wells.

“Including four rooftop cabins, El Moore Lodge will offer ten hostel rooms, each with a private bathroom. As for conventional apartments, expect thirteen units ranging from studios to two-bedrooms. Bringing it all together: a large common room for residents and visitors to mingle. According to Peet, the hostel allows guests to be ‘embedded in the neighborhood’.”
